Toronto, ON – March 5, 2020 – CCI Inc. was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2020 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating investment in talent and technology, innovation in a competitive environment, and an increased focus on global competition. Now in its 27th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

Since 2004, CCI Inc. has provided services to the North American oil and gas and municipal infrastructure industries. We initially specialized in designing, building and maintaining trenchless crossings, typically the highest risk part of a crossings project, but have now expanded our services into many other aspects of the work. The company has had great success, for 16 consecutive years, of ensuring Forestry, Geotech, Trenchless and Open Cut Crossings, Pipelines and Construction Monitoring are sound by taking a detailed approach to every project. CCI’s multi-disciplinary team focuses on the overall project with engineers, geologists, geotechnical specialists, construction experts, foresters, biologists, project managers, writers, geomatics and GIS specialists.

“Best Managed Platinum Club winners are resilient. They have been consistent in successfully adapting to change throughout the years and overcoming economic challenges. These companies truly impact how Canada is viewed on the world stage when it comes to the success of private business,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2020 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) a clear and concise strategy, capability to invest in R&D, tools and proprietary equipment, and a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility.

“CCI Inc is tremendously proud to continue to be among such a worthy field of Canadian business success stories,” said David Dupuis, Chief Operating Officer at CCI Inc. “We credit our talented pool of highly qualified technical people as the key to being able to deliver stellar results, project after project.”

“Businesses today are faced with many challenges and must stay focused and agile in order to sustain and drive growth. They need to demonstrate resilience and commitment to their people, their purpose and their competitive position in the Canadian business world and this year’s Best Managed winners are doing just that,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies can celebrate their accomplishments today, and should be excited for tomorrow.”

2020 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1, 2020.  On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
